Kontihene can't use me to revive his dead career - Kwaw Kese

Rapper Kwaw Kese says recent disparaging comments made against him by fellow musician Kontihene are just a ruse to resuscitate Kontihene's dead career.

Kontihene is reported to have stated in a recent interview on Okay FM that there is no way he can be compared to Kwaw Kese.

According to him, “I am wiser than him, I am more presentable as well as more educated, our way of dressing is even different and on top of it, I am more handsome then he is.”

Kwaw Kese, also known as 'Abodam' speaking in an interview with Myjoyonline.com laughed off the comments stating Kontihene is just being childish.

"I heard Kontihene is trying to use my name to resurrect his dead career. I think that is a mistake and it's childish. He can't do that he's been dead for ten years and you can't use me as a way to resurrect your career," he said.

The 'King of the Street', said "We all know that he is trying to use me to resurrect his dead career and I won't help him do that."

Born Emmanuel Abrompah Botchwey, the rapper alleged that Kontihene's marriage to his heartthrob Dulcie Omane Boateng in Sunyani on Saturday, January 18, was just a publicity stunt.

"This is one person who has even faked the marriage to shoot his name back to fame. He is trying whatever possible to come back into the game. The marriage is basically a publicity stunt," he alleged and added that he doubts if Kontihene is truly married.

Reacting to Kontihene's comments that he is handsomer than Kwaw Kese, The King of the Street said, "I don't want to be handsome. I want to be an ugly [fearful] man..."

Kwaw Kese believes a song - 'Nonsense' - he released about ten years ago with a slight reference to Kontihene's song - 'Megizigi' - is still eating him up.

He said it does not make sense for Kontihene, born Emmanuel Nana Appiah Boateng, to make derogatory comments about him because of song released 10 years ago.
